First link doesn't work.

And not only are we supplied with the names of the first AMW Micron Gabu, Bogu and Dai, but also with the first weapon name: Dark Matter Calibur.

And is it me, or is TakaraTomy really going all out with those campaigns?

You know, it looks like the "exclusive limited" Opi will be the least rare Micron out there.
You get him just for joining one of the challenges, for all of the challenges in fact.
It's like they don't even want that thing.
The rarest and most hard to get will be the B.2. one and the ultra gold limited thing.

I was researching the Arms Up Game and came across this thread. I found it interesting because it's 9 months later and Shining O.P. is going for a little bit more than Shining B.2

I just think its funny that there seemed to be more of them but still they sell for more almost a year later.
